Old Fashioned Southern Peach Cobbler

My Mom really knew how to make those southern desserts. Those down home recipes that you knew were going to be good way before they went into the oven. I remember this peach cobbler so well. We would go to the local peach orchard and she would bring a big bushel basket full of fresh peaches for a peach pie, peach cake, homemade peach ice cream and we always looked forward to her southern peach cobbler. There was nothing better! 

Old Fashioned Southern Peach Cobbler


8 fresh peaches sliced into thin wedges (or use frozen)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water


3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

While the filling is baking, combine flour, both sugars, baking powder, and salt. Blend in cold butter with a fork or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.

Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of cobbler mixture over the top. Sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes. 

Serve with Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
